“Aretha Arrives” is Franklin’s chart-topping 1967 blockbuster hit. The eclectic collection features the standout tune “Baby, I Love You”, which would sell over a million copies worldwide and reached #1 on Billboard’s Top R&B singles. Aretha Arrives also includes earth-shattering renditions of classics including “Satisfaction”, “You Are My Sunshine” and “Night Life”. Franklin possesses a voice that defined generations and this definitive soul masterpiece showcases everything the multi-GRAMMY winner does best.

Recorded in 1967 after the first flush of back-to-back successes with “Respect” and “I Never Loved a Man,” this captures Aretha Franklin in peak form. Lady Soul provides her own piano accompaniment on the majority of tracks here, and the core band is the same one that provided the fire on her previous album. The tunes are an eclectic batch, and while “Baby, I Love You” was the hit of the album, Franklin turns in strong versions of “Satisfaction,” “You Are My Sunshine,” “Night Life,” “Ain’t Nobody (Gonna Turn Me Around),” and a quirky cover of “96 Tears” for good measure. An essential addition to her discography.
